Several reports last week indicated that DT Jimmy Kennedy would return to the Vikings, even after a free agent visit with the Buffalo Bills. Today, the Vikings have announced that the 7-year veteran and the club have indeed agreed to terms.
Kennedy will enter his 3rd season as a Viking in 2010 after originally joining the team in December of 2008. He enjoyed one of his most productive seasons in 2009, matching his career-best 3.0 sacks in the regular season and adding another sack during the playoffs. Kennedy made 1 start in 2009, filling in for Pat Williams at Chicago and tallying 9 tackles that night.
The former Penn State standout wa the #12 selection in the 2003 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams and has played for St. Louis, Chicago and Jacksonville, along with the Vikings, during his career. He has played in 77 career games with 31 starts and has posted 10.0 career sacks.
